Of all the numerous Blue Flag beaches in the Western Cape, none are more beloved than Clifton 1st through to 4th! For a properly busy beach with perfect sands, many swimming spots and all manner of beach and ocean activity, Clifton Beach is the way to go.
On perfect summer afternoons you will see luxury yachts dropping anchor in the bay, which is uniquely sheltered from the frequent Capetonian winds (specifically the south easterly ones).
After a dip (or two) and maybe some beach volleyball, why not head over to Bungalow for their signature pomegranate mojito mixed with Bacardi rum muddled with fresh pomegranate, lime quarters, pomegranate syrup and mint leaves (amazing!).
Location: You’ll find Clifton on the far right of Camps Bay (facing the ocean) stretching below Bantry Bay on the way to Sea Point.
Clifton Beach is one of the iconic blue flag beaches that Cape Town has to offer, with amazing views and pearly white sand.
Now imagine that combined with a sunset Yoga class where you salute the sun amongst fellow enthusiasts of all degrees of ability. The picturesque setting and the healthy activity will be a breath of fresh air for the soul, a bit of a break and a little reset before we plunge headlong into the new year.
Neighboured by the suburbs of Camps Bay and Bantry Bay, Clifton is one of the most exclusive and affluent areas in Cape Town with its beaches (four of them) ranked within the top ten beaches in the world, and awarded Blue Flag status. Clifton properties have spectacular panoramic sea views and the area has been earmarked for a massive upgrade by the city council, with all pathways and amenities due to be revamped over the course of the next 2 years.
